The Sooners are sore losers
By John Rohde
NORMAN - The Sooners displayed little class after Saturday's 17-10 upset loss to TCU on Owen Field.
No more than a dozen Oklahoma players shook hands with the Horned Frogs. The Sooners' remaining players headed straight for the locker room.
Those spotted offering congratulations included running back Adrian Peterson, quarterback Paul Thompson, tight end Willie Roberts, cornerback D.J. Wolfe, safety Lewis Baker, wide receiver Lendy Holmes and, the head classman, fullback J.D. Runnels.
TCU wide receiver Cory Rodgers forgave the Sooners' snub and said, "Me and (OU receiver) Travis Wilson are real cool. Me and (OU linebacker) Clint Ingram are real cool. I'm not holding a grudge against them for being upset, being mad and running off the field. I understand that, so I don't think we looked at it as an insult, a slap in the face or anything like that."
OU fans weren't much better.
Roughly 90 percent of Sooner supporters refused to chat when approached by Oklahoman reporter Brandon Chatmon after the game.
OU coach Bob Stoops met Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson at midfield.
"He just told me, 'Great job,' " Patterson said of Stoops. "I have a high respect for him and his staff. I consider them very good friends. I wish them luck. You hate playing in ball games against friends because somebody has to lose. I'm just glad today it wasn't me."
